As urie of the only two American correspondents wvso have ever made, such a flight, I have just had an ex traordinary opportunity to picture for The Journal, a typical birdserye vi.-w of the Grand Fleet base. A former student of Wisconsin I'nivrsitv. now a star pilot of tho fleet, took mo aboard his seaplane. It stood on the deck of a former trans-Al h.ntic lrur. whose cildd sa lmons have, been converted into re pairs shops, whoso broad decks har bor fat observation balloons, and from whose flanks and prows as sho plows along1 in the wake of the Grand Fleet speedy airplanes can be senl up for observation, like so many doves from a modern Noah's ark. As I clambered aboadr this particu lar seaplane, its wing.-; were, folded ! back nlon-T its side. In a moment the wintrs ha i boon spread, deftly locked in place, and we had been hooted easily into the sea. In an other moment the awkward mother ship was wallowing below us and we were soaring high over the vast bodv of watir hero the Grand Fleet lay.' Half a mile irto the air we climbed, and still from this vantage point tho further fringe of the fleet in re- : a i Inte corners or tne ancnorage were ,n visible, so vast an extent of water doe? the Bi:tish navy pataerevl here occupy. r in one pot a supe. was cruising about at target practice A squadron of battleships at mother point were exporimonFrg with some new maneuver.
